Welcome from the Headteacher
Dear Parents, Carers and Friends,
We offer you a warm welcome to Henry Cavendish Primary School. Our website aims to tell you a little about life at Henry Cavendish, how we work and what we feel is important to us as a whole school community.
Henry Cavendish is situated on two separate sites, in Balham and in Streatham. Our school caters for children from the age of three to eleven, from Nursery to Year 6. We are a happy school where the atmosphere is relaxed and conducive to high achievement. We take pride in our diverse community. We value every child as an individual and are proud of being an inclusive school and of our cultural and linguistic diversity. We work closely with parents and families.
We have high expectations of all our children both socially and academically. We place great emphasis on personal, social and emotional development by fostering caring attitudes, thoughtfulness, mutual respect, self-discipline and self-confidence. We aim to develop each child as an individual, nurturing their strengths and talents. We give our pupils responsibility and believe that they should be encouraged to do their best in a positive, hard working learning environment. We place a strong emphasis on creativity and ensuring that our pupils enjoy learning and have fun.
We welcome visitors – come to Henry Cavendish and see for yourself what makes us so proud to be part of this school, simply make an appointment with either school office.
